frequently asked questions
more information about our design packages
Which Design Package is right for me?
We will walk you through all of the ChefVue packages and options during our 15-minute ChefVue Session to help you determine which package is right for you. Please see our package comparison here.
What if I select one design package, but realize during the design process that I need a different package?
Great! We can seamlessly proceed to the next level of design with you, and previous payment will go towards the next phase.
Once I have selected a package, how will the design process work?
We will start the project with a 30-60 minute Design Kick-Off ChefVue Session hosted by your dedicated Chef Designer. During that call, the Designer will listen to your project vision and needs and then translate it into a preliminary layout. Once the preliminary layout is complete we will ChefVue again and collaborate in real-time and make any revisions with you. Depending on the package that you select, you will participate in two or three collaborative Design Review ChefVue meetings with your Chef prior to finalizing the layout and equipment package. Please see our package comparison here for more information.
How long does the design process take?
We have packages that can be completed in as little as 2 weeks. During each ChefVue meeting, your dedicated Chef will discuss timelines and what to expect for the next steps as you continue through the design process.
How will I communicate with my designer?
We will communicate with you via e-mail and text. The Design Kick-Off and ChefVue meetings will take place through Zoom, where your Chef will collaborate with you and make real time changes if needed. PDF Drawings will be sent to you using Email.
Can I include equipment I already own in my design?
Of course! Our goal in any design is to create an efficient and effective space for your vision to become reality. If you have existing equipment that you would like to re-use in your project, please come prepared to the ChefVue Kick-Off meeting with equipment dimensions, manufacturer/model numbers, and utility requirements so that we can incorporate your existing equipment into the design.
Can I purchase the equipment I need from ChefVue?
Yes! You can purchase through our partner LaBel Foodservice Equipment. Once your design is finalized we can submit it to LaBel who will send you an equipment quote for your project.
Would I be able to submit these drawings for permitting and health inspections?
No, the documents provided through this service are for concept and layout only. All documents needed for permitting or health inspections would need to be provided by a licensed professional.
Are these documents construction-ready?
No, the documents provided through this service are for concept and layout only. All necessary construction documents would need to be provided by a construction professional.
I am not ready to start construction, can I still buy a design?
